In solidarity with its travel agent partners, Auto Europe is pledging $5 per reservation booked by any travel agent, nationwide, for their client now through Dec. 31 for a relief fund to assist agents affected by the record breaking wildfires raging through California. In addition, Imad Khalidi, CEO of Auto Europe, also vows to personally match the pledge.
According to Cal Fire, there are currently 15 major wildfires burning throughout the state.
"We as an industry need to unite in this time of crisis and help our fellow partners," Khalidi said. "Our hopes are also that other suppliers will also rally and show their support with similar pledges or contributions."
Previously, Auto Europe contributed funds to similar relief programs supporting agents impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the deadly wildfires that charred Southern California in 2007.
Agents that are in need of urgent support without delay can contact Auto Europe.
